Weekend retreat with Saint Thérèse of Lisieux at SLC set for Nov. 9-11
A weekend retreat on Nov. 9-11 at the Spiritual Life Center will take participants on a journey through Scripture with Saint Thérèse of Lisieux. Brother Joseph Schmidt will lead the weekend.
The “Little Flower,” as Saint Thérèse is often called, is one of the most popular saints of our time. Pope St. John Paul II wrote that her “little way” is nothing other than the gospel way of holiness for all.
During the retreat, Br. Joseph, the author of the best-selling book “Everything Is Grace: The Life and Way of Thérèse of Lisieux,” helps retreatants understand Thérèse’s message through the Scripture passages that illuminated her insights about God and his merciful love.
Participants will be guided during the retreat to discover how their own relationship with the Lord might be transformed by the Little Way of St. Thérèse.
Weekend retreats at the SLC include five meals, all conferences, Mass and quiet prayer time. Brother Schmidt is a De LaSalle Christian Brother currently based in Philadelphia, he serves as a spiritual director, lecturer, and retreat master.
